iTunes Editors’ Notes

Marianne Faithfull’s hard life and resiliency have been well noted, but the breadth of her interpretive musical abilities is what makes her the notable star attraction she’s become among her cult audience. Her voice is a naturally weathered wonder, crackling and croaking with sublime precision making every song sound as if it had been written with her in mind. This 2009 collection of covers with producer Hal Willner overseeing the arrangements is an eclectic, flawless mix of surprises packed with enough special guests for an all-star extravaganza — Antony Hegarty, Rufus Wainwright, Jarvis Cocker, Nick Cave and Keith Richards, for starters. Covers range from Dolly Parton’s “Down from Dover” to Randy Newman’s “In Germany Before the War,” Smokey Robinson’s “Ooh Baby Baby,” the Decemberists’ “The Crane Wife 3” (with Cave), and Merle Haggard’s “Sing Me Back Home” (with Richards). Faithfull is the great equalizer, putting Judee Sill into context with Neko Case, Billie Holiday in league with alt-folk’s Espers. There is no genre that could keep Faithfull as a member. She doesn’t seem to have a limit.

Customer Reviews

Still Lovin Marianne

I love everything Marianne's ever released going back to the double lp of Marianne Faithfull/Come my way. She has the greatness of Lotte Lenya (which is obviously immensely misunderstood by Crystalstarr, who should probably keep listening to her bubblegum pop and not bother to criticize what she obviously does not understand. ) Anyway, love this album especially The Crane Wife 3 and How many Worlds. Love you Marianne...

Amazing album from an "original"

Marianne Faithfull is definitely an "acquired taste" but I find this album her best in years. The orchestrations are beautiful, which when played against her vocals, are a perfect match of contrasts.

Sublime

I'm oh-so biased: I think Marianne Faithfull is god - albeit with a better sense of humor. True to form, marianne contnues her evolution and is kind enough to take us along for the ride. This album harkens back to "Srange Weather" and "Twentieth Century Blues" but feels more contemporary than those two releases. "Easy Come Easy Go" find Marianne in fine form. While there are those who will find her vocalizations an acquired taste, she remains one of our best interpreters of modern music. Brava!

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Few stars of the '60s reinvented themselves as successfully as Marianne Faithfull. Coaxed into a singing career by Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham in 1964, she had a big hit in both Britain and the U.S. with her debut single, the Jagger/Richards composition "As Tears Go By" (which prefaced the Stones' own version by a full year). Considerably more successful in her native land than the States, she had a series of hits in the mid-'60s that set her high, fragile voice against delicate orchestral...
